Brenda Smith Myles is presenting on The Hidden Curriculum
The Hidden Curriculum refers to the set of rules or guidelines that are often not directly taught but are assumed to be known (Garrett, 1984; Hemmings, 2000; Jackson, 1968; Kanpur, 1989). This curriculum contains items that impact social interactions, school performance, and sometimes health and well-being. The curriculum also includes unspoken rules, slang, metaphors, body language, etc. While this information may be intuitive for neurotypical individuals, it is not for those with special needs. This session includes practical tips for teaching these hidden social needs to children and to adults and stresses the importance of making these a part of everyday life.

I decided to start sharing shorter thoughts I have about this parenting journey of ours. Sometimes I put more pressure on myself to write longer pieces and stress over not completing them and realized that my short thoughts have a lot to say!
